Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
The building remains at Cagsawa Ruins Park provide a ghostly reminder of a town destroyed by a violent volcanic eruption. Centered primarily on a 16th-century Franciscan church, the ruins consist of a burnt-out stone belfry and surrounding foundations. Explore the site to get a sense of how the area looked before the eruption of nearby Mount Mayon, which obliterated the town in 1814. Make your way up to the ruined bell tower, covered in jungle growth, and peek inside--townsfolk sheltered here during the eruption. Don't miss the small plaque on the outside of the structure detailing more of the church's earlier history.

  • We enjoyed the view, the history and the picture taking. It is a nice place. It is a low cost place with a relaxing atmosphere. 
  • You have to see it because if you come to see the Mayon Volcano you can not miss it. However it is not something of this world. You have a beautiful view of the mountain, they are standing in the ruins of the Tower of the Church and the convent. Many stalls selling fruits dried and souvenirs. He walks through the area in 20 minutes. I missed missing a bit more of information.
